Nobody can capture that level of excitement and unpredictability when they fight. Anderson is the reason that I joined Sherdog to begin with. I will still read about it but I don't care about any fights or upcoming fights or who fights. It just doesn't matter anymore.
I feel like my best friend died or something. I actually found myself wishing death on Chris Weidman last night. Say what you want. Call it extreme butthurt or youmad or jimmies rustled or crying or whatever. I feel so much worse than I did when Fedor lost. It was an unimaginable scenario for me. Not in my worst nightmares could Anderson be knocked out. Sure I'm venting right now. I had to. I was in shock over it last night. I lost sleep over it. My girlfriend thinks I'm being silly but she doesn't understand. She tried to compare it to football and the Steelers being champs but I can't make the connection.
MMA is pretty much ruined for me now. Am I the only one?
There will be no other loss that compares to the way Silva lost last night. I was there when Fedor got subbed, Lyoto's invincibility shattered, and when GSP got Serra'd. Not even one of those fights comes close to the amount of shock I felt when Silva got KTFO'd by Weidman. Silva did more then destroy his own mystic, he shattered the notion of invincibility itself. We've all been watching silva for years fight like a cartoon character, him losing was the farthest thing from the realm of possibility. His fans looked at him as the closest thing to a superhuman...but that all came down last night. Anderson and every other man on this planet is just that...a man.
